How do I facilitate a session?

If you’re new to the THATCamp scene, you might be wondering how to facilitate a session. This is entirely up to you, but here are a few suggestions…

Camper introductions

  • Who are you?
  • Where do you come from?
  • What do you know about the session topic?
  • What would you like to get out of the session?

Plan the session

  • How are we going to record our ideas? (whiteboard/notepads/Google docs/something else)
  • What are our session objectives? (write these down)

Go for it!

Learn, share, hack, build, brainstorm…

 Wrap up

  • What are our takeaways?
  • What this session useful?
  • Do we need more time? We could use another session to continue…
